An incredible Rat Rod built by ITW hotrods. This was built for the 2014 rat
rod magazine build off. Where builders compete to see who can build the
baddest rat rod in 30 days for under $3,000. In order to qualify you must
travel a minimum of 300 miles of the cross country tour as well as the
aforementioned time and money restraints.

Classic VW Engine Rebuild, By Last Chance Auto Restore.com
We began with a dual port 1600 cc engine from a 1973 Volkswagen Beetle.
The engine ran with a miss and was smoking a bit . After performing a
compression test,(both wet and dry) , we determined the crankshaft and
bearings were fine.
We replaced the pistons, pots & rings. We had the valves redone and made
several upgrades along the way.....

Bradley GT VW Bug with YZFR-1 R1 Engine on the road
Thanks again to Mike Sousa on the video and posting. Antique Car is totally
done, registered and driving. It ends up liking 6th gear (motorcycle
tranny), it went a little "over" speed limit in 4th (VW tranny), but seems
to have the same top end speed that the normal VDub would have, about 80-90
mph, "though I didn't push it to that officer, honestly"
